Recent guest reviews

We love everything about this trip, since the greetings from the hotel staff till the time of check out.

Affordable, easy stay. Great pool for kids! Check in was super easy and staff was friendly.

The hotel staff is great and they fixed up the lobby to be modern and bright, but the rooms could use some updating. Having a patio that opens is nice along with a warm indoor pool. Too bad locals feel the need to rent a room and invite there whole family to swim all weekend. They should of been kicked out.

Everyone was very friendly. The hotel was quiet so I could get some work done and the breakfast simple and good.

We had a pleasant experience, all the staff were nice and the manager took care of the problem we had in the room very quickly, we will definitely stay in this hotel again when we come back to Rhode Island.

Our stay was just great. The buffet breakfast was excellent. It took us 5-6 minutes to drive and park to where we chose to visit in Newport.

Although this hotel is older and perhaps in need of renovation, it was clean and comfortable.

The front desk was very friendly and helpful. They upgraded our room for free. The room was very clean, the only drawback was the cloying scent of the room freshener.

Affordable hotel with cheap shuttle to Newport. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and free breakfast.

The staff really make this place. They are friendly and provide prompt service. The place wasn't super fancy but clean and comfortable.

Excellent value for the price. The lobby and other areas of the hotel will be undergoing renovation soon, too!

Good value, but they do need to upgrade & offer real free contintental breakfast to be competitive with other local hotels. Also the stair hallways were ridiculosly hot since there was no airconditioning in these areas

We enjoyed the hotel, it was in a convenient location. Drives to shops and tourist spots within reason. Hotel was clean, but needs to be updated. Staff were very pleasant.

I had a short business trip and needed something simple and convenient they provided that.

Clean rooms friendly staff good location would stay here again

Very Clean room, beds awesome, staff friendly & helpful, the pool & hot tub clean & relaxing.

The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Nice indoor swimmin pool and good location. You can't beat the price.

Nice clean room, comfortable beds, ample space for 3. Long, long hallways. There is an Applebee's next door that is very good. Breakfast (?) was a cup of coffee and a banana. No bagels, no toaster, etc. Traveling companion went to the pool and said it was nice.

Quiet, clean hotel with nice pool and good location to Newport. Reasonable price for this area.Good choice for Newport - would stay here again. Physically connected to Applebees which was convenient. Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks right around the corner.
